Picture

When we were in Broome two months ago (has it been that long already?), we visited an art gallery and saw this picture, and I immediately fell in love with it.

Windram Print

We decided to buy this version printed on canvas, and brought it home and had it stretched on a frame. It’s about one metre (just over three feet) wide, and we’ve hung it on the wall above our bed.  It looks gorgeous.  The artist is Ingrid Windram, and you can read more about her here.  She’s Australian and does some lovely stuff.  We also brought a print of “Brolgas in the Moonlight” but since it’s framed I can’t get a decent photo without reflection off the glass.  If you click on the link to her website and then on the “prints” page, you’ll be able to see a picture of it.

    This is gorgeous. We have lots of beautiful photos of the kids around our house, which I love, but I am itching to add some prints and other pieces that I see from time to time. I guess I’m waiting until we move into our own place and I can put hooks in as many walls as I want – one of the few pitfalls of renting.

    Love the artwork.

    Do you use a digital instamatic type camera? If you do ~ try the tip below.

    Tip: if you want to take a photo of a pic behind glass, set your camera onto landscape first. Then when you take the photo it won’t reflect the glass. Make sure the flash is turned off first too ~ so take the pic in natural daylight. It works for me.
